Hey guys,

Check out this YouTube video of my two boys (ages 9 & 10) doing a short cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

The 9-year-old guitarist is using my Orange Tiny Terror through an Avatar G12H30 1x12 cab. His brother is playing a looowww-strung SX short-scale bass through a Roland Cube 30. (The Cube 30 was so underpowered compared to the Tiny Terror that I just bought him a used Ampeg BA-112).

Link To YouTube Video

There's a higher resolution version of this video on YouTube; just click on the text that says "Watch in high quality."

Enjoy!

The OP is considered SPAM? What? Are you kidding me?

It's a YouTube video of 2 kids covering a song. I'm in the gear section and mentioned that the amp used was an Orange Tiny Terror. Where's the spam?

No spam/advertising!!

*reported*


I believe many people should be robbed of their reporting privelages, and this guy is one of them. If he is not doing any harm and not being obnoxious, why report him and possibly get him banned? Grow up.

Anyways awesome job with the song

Spam or Advertising are you crazy? That was one of the sweetest things I've seen on here. It's his kids for crying out loud. The last thing this was is spam or advertising.

Armchair Bronco I would be very proud if I were you. Thanks for the levity!

I actually thought long and hard about where to put this post before I made it. The gear forum seemed to make as much sense as any other place. Also, this was (and is) my first thread at U-G, so there may have been better locations but due to my newness around here I didn't (and still don't) know about 'em. Is there a forum for "Kids Covering Nirvana Tunes At the Talent Show"?

I will say this: I've started several threads featuring this video on various websites, and there have also been several other threads that started up spontaneously without any help from me...and this is the FIRST time I've either been accused of SPAM or someone has had anything to say that wasn't positive.

I may be new around here (I am), but if thought-police like the complainer in Post #2 have their way, this would be a pretty boring place indeed. Every neighborhood seems to have one or two nosy Nellies who see potential "neighborhood" infractions where none exist. Some people call 'em "Conspiracy Therorists". This place is no different, I guess.

If I can't post a Video of a Tiny Terror clip in the gear forum, then where should I go?

I'm going to defend Armchair Bronco.

Lots of people do gear reviews and gear videos, me included. I post here to get views. Yes my intentions is to show what the amp sounds like the first place, but still.

Also, those guys were great. I have heard better versions of SLTS, but so many that are far worse (Hackley School anyone?) and considering your kids are only 9 and 10 they are great! Keep up the good job!

Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys! I appreciate it.

On account of this video, my boys hooked up with a 10-year-old drummer this weeked and had their first practice as a Power Trio.

I'd ask for some ear plug recommendations for their next practice, but then I might be accused of "soliciting"...and we couldn't have that, could we?
#16
Its nice to see you started them out with good equipment too. I wish my parents knew at least something about guitars and i wouldn't have to be doing a complete gear makeover this summer
#17
good tone, pretty good playing seeing as they're 9 & 10 years old, and the vocals were pretty good too ! you should be proud, armchair bronco !

oh, and don't mind the accusations of spamming

(btw, I hope you teach your boys to always wear earplugs at gigs ? because their hearing is the most valuable instrument they'll ever have, and it gets damaged more easily at their age)

Lemme quote my gf here....

Tell 'em I said nice job. And now I add a TT to mu GAS list....

To tell the truth, *I* started myself out with good equipment...but I share my gear with my kids!

When I was their age, my parents started me off with the world's worst plywood acoustic guitar. It was made in Poland or East Germany just like a T-34 tank. The fret were like nails that had been glued on to a piece of black-stained plywood, and I swear that the strings had once been used as barbed wired. My parents were well-intentioned, but that guitar was such a POS that I didn't pick up another one for more than 30 years!

I only got (re)started with guitars about 2 years ago, and I vowed not to make my kids re-live the horrors of crap-ola gear. Sure, they've got "starter" guitars (an Ibanez GAX-70 and an SX short-scale bass), but all things considered these are solid starter axes. We also have several Roland modeling amps that are great for quiet practicing, but nuttin' compares to a decent tube amp like the Tiny Terror.

This summer, we'll be modding their axes with hotter pups and new pots and wiring (& maybe a new bridge for the bass). And if they stick with it, maybe next year they can get some more expensive gear. But for now, we've got the bases covered.

Sounds like you got it all figured out man

I may have to follow this model for my kids. They're definately going to be raised in a musical home

The other piece of gear that's highly recommended in a BOSS RC-2 Loop Station. Of all my pedals, this one is my favorite.

It's great for noodling and trying out (and capturing) different musical ideas, and during the performance the boys used it to play back a drum track that a drummer friend of mine had recorded with an electronic drum kit.

Sometimes, the boys prefer jamming alone, so I'll record the guitarist practicing a song and then the bassists gets to play along with the track at his leisure. Later in the day, I reverse the process.

Highly recommended.

Not intending to kick a dead horse or anything, but earlier today I took the time to carefully read through the FAQ for new users in response to the two folks who took offense to the original post (or OP).

Quote by Lil Macker
No spam/advertising!!

*reported*


Here's the relevant section from the FAQ:

What should I do if I see someone spamming/advertising on the forums?
- When you see a thread which is obviously spam or advertising (i.e is completely pointless or contains links to websites which are trying to sell something/contain pornography, etc.) do not post in it for any reason unless you are reporting it, and include *reported* in your post so other users are aware that the thread has been reported.

Obviously, "Lil Macker" never took the time to read the FAQ before he appointed himself the sheriff of the Gear Forum. Clearly, my thread was NOT "obviously spam or advertising", nor was it "completely pointless", nor did it contain any links to websites which were "trying to sell something". And I can promise you that it did NOT contain any pornography. This is the criteria for *reporting* an offending thread, and it's obvious that "Lil Macker" over-stepped his bounds.

Another self-appointed judge made the following "ruling":

Quote by acdcrocks0323
The fact that you are looking for more views and comments on youtube. Even if your intentions are to show off [sic!] the TT, this isn't the place to post about it. Sorry.


Folks, when you hear a conservative talk show radio host talk about the evils of "Judicial Activism", this is what they're referring to. If I can't post a link to a video of the Tiny Terror on the Guitar Gear & Accessories Forum ("Discuss guitar amps & effects") then where, pray tell, should I go?

Some judicially active judges are appointed for life, and there's not much we can do about that. But lots of self-appointed judges and sheriffs only have "authority" if we meekly let them throw their weight around.

Over at the Orange Forum, it's verboten to talk about prices (as the site is sponsored by Orange), but I guess those rules don't apply over here.

In any event, Orange (like Mesa Boogie) doesn't allow any discounting, so the prices everywhere are pretty much consistent. I paid $549 for mine back in January after waiting nearly 2 months.

National chains like GC generally don't sell them, either. I got mine from Emerald City Guitars which is (I think) one of two official distributors in the Seattle area.

The Orange site has a dealer locater feature: just type in an area code, and you'll get a list of authorized dealers near your home. Just be prepared to wait for two or three months (or more if you decided you want the Tiny Terror Combo).
